Larkinville has become a neighborhood that isn’t just up-and-coming anymore, but an anchor in our city. Rich with history, Larkinville highlights the rust-belt style and industrial era architecture that lasted through Buffalo’s demolition era and has breathed new life into the whole neighborhood.
Construction of 500 Seneca began in 1901 to be the home of F.N. Burt Company, the world’s largest paper box manufacturer at the time. Now, it’s a 300k square foot mixed use building that’s home to offices, restaurants, retail, apartments, and a beautiful courtyard in the center.
The natural light that is let in through the gigantic, factory style windows is something that cannot easily be found. High ceilings, open spaces, and natural light are definitely the selling points for the apartments and there is a 200 person long waiting list to show just how desirable living here has become.
